July 31, 2014
Katy Perry has unleashed her colorful new video for "This Is How We Do," and it's filled with pop art, vintage fashion and tasty foods. Check out the clip below:
Alicia Keys and hubby Swizz Beatz are expecting their second child. The couple announced the news via Instagram, with Keys writing, "Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz. And to make it even sweeter we've been blessed with another angel on the way! You make me happier than I have ever known! Here's to many many more years of the best parts of life!" The couple married in 2010, and they have a three-year-old son.
Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull have added nine new dates to their fall tour. The 24-city run kicks off on September 12 in Newark, NJ and now runs through October 28 in Orlando, FL. Latin Urban Star J Balvin is also on the bill as the supporting act.
Nikki Sixx and his band Sixx:A.M. will release their third album, Modern Vintage, on October 7. The first single, "Gotta Get It Right," will hit iTunes and radio on August 5. Says bassist Nikki Sixx: "Like our favorite bands from the 1970s, Sixx:A.M. is rooted in songwriting, musicianship and lyrics - three core elements that helped to define that era. Sixx:A.M. has taken even more pages from this book on 'Gotta Get It Right' and the rest of Modern Vintage, having hopefully created a record that demands to be discovered again and again."
Fitz and The Tantrums will perform three songs in Arthur Ashe Stadium as part of the opening ceremony of the U.S. Open tennis tournament on August 25. Grammy-winning brothers Bebe, Marvin and Carvin Winans will sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the ceremony.
